We're reopening our managed pubs on 4th July

W e’re reopening our managed pubs on Saturday 4th July - the day that pubs in England can resume trading. Over 70 per cent of our tenanted pubs will also reopen this weekend.

We're excited to welcome you back to our pubs safely.

Led by the Government’s new guidelines for hospitality, we’ve introduced a number of extra measures in our managed pubs.

Steve Worrall, Managing Director of St Austell Brewery’s Pubs, Inns and Hotels said:

“We’re delighted to be reopening our managed estates from 4th July. We’ve been busy preparing and have invested in new measures to keep our pub teams and guests safe."

“Our customers may notice some small differences when they come back and see us, but our usual warm welcome hasn’t changed. Even in these unusual times, we can offer the same delicious food, fresh draught beers, great hospitality and a proper pub experience."

W e know for so many, pubs play an important role at the very heart of communities. We’re looking forward to welcoming people back this Saturday.

In addition to being able to pre-book tables online, guests will be welcomed at the door on arrival and shown to their seat. Customers will have the option of table service or using St Austell Brewery’s new ‘Easy Orders’ app, to pay for their food and drink. We’ve also introduced one-way systems, to encourage social distancing, and tables will be spaced apart by at least one metre.

St Austell Brewery’s pub teams are being trained in cleanliness and hygiene and there will be a team member dedicated to regular cleaning procedures, throughout the day. Customers will also be encouraged to pay by card and make regular use of hand sanitiser stations throughout the pub.

The Rock Point Inn in Lyme Regis, St Austell Brewery’s first managed house in Dorset, will open for the first time in mid-July.


We're excited to welcome you back to our managed pubs across the South West. Reconnect with friends and family over a delicious meal and a pint (or two!).
